Pete Doherty leaves Wormwood Scrubs prison

Pete Doherty is set to play his rescheduled gig at London's Royal Albert Hall on 12 July, following his early release from prison.

Doherty was originally due to play the solo show, which sold out in just 40 minutes, on 26 April.

But he was jailed on 8 April for 14 weeks for a string of drug offences. He served just four weeks of the sentence.

Tickets for the original show will still be valid for the new date next month.

Doherty's band Babyshambles were forced to cancel a string of gigs during his incarceration.

They are due to play at Glastonbury in June.
